This two day workshop can help! It will introduce you to your voice, how it works and how to develop it. You will have the chance to try out and extend your own range (volume, diction and articulation) while practising clear enunciation and accurate intonation.

The workshop offers theory and practice: we will draw on communication theory and apply exercises from the world of theatre to help you to speak more clearly.

Do you wish to speak clearly to:

  • Give talks or lectures in English?
  • Defend your dissertation?
  • Present posters at conferences?
  • Express yourself in teams and working groups?


The participation in this course is accountable for the certificate "Science Communication" of the Graduate Center. Contact  Dr. Sabine Milde smilde@gz.uni-kiel.de if you are interested.

Should the minimum number of participants not have been reached, the event will not take place due to financial reasons. Once the minimum number of participants has been reached, further registrations are possible until 8 days previous to the beginning of the event.
